a secret smile...

Holy Smokes! Absolutley incredible work on this thread! I agree she worked exceptionall well for the Mona Lisa, and I absolutlely loved the fairy! What is really neat about looking at an old thread is to see how people have refined their techniques and preferences.

Was sad to read Jim has passed away, he has a lovely grandaughter.

I have been fiddling with some variations with the basic steps I used on another portrait, here are my steps.

I did all the preliminary work in Corel Photopaint just because I am more
familiar with it than Photoshop. I have only had photoshop for about a year
and still have much to learn about it.

-desaturated original
-adjusted color balance- shadows a dusky blue, highlights peachy
-ran Paint Alchemy (a variant of sponge clip) the Impressionist filter
would work great too (a spongy look, geez I love that plug, It's incredible!)
-saved this as image1
-opened original and desaturated about 50% ?
-saved as image2

-opened image1 in Painter 8 this was the working image
-opened image2 in Painter, set this as the clone source
-added a new layer in image1 and used a smeary camel varient set to clone
her face and edge of hair. Set this layer to 50% transp
-added a new watercolor layer and touched up the eyes, lips, hair and added
some red in her shirt
-dropped all layers and added paper texture, parchment.

-cropped, resized, unsharpen mask to bring back clarity

A simply lovely interpretation. Jim is certainly smiling about this one.

Happy Fathers Day!

I was looking for images to practice portrait techniques and thought this one fit the bill!

I used TM watercolor AHB, highpass filter, smudging, and texture.

Glad you took a shot at this one. It's one of my favorites.

This thread was started a couple years before the "portraits" subforum was started by one of the founding members of the photo-art forum. Although Jim passed away about a year ago, I'm sure he would haved liked this interpretation a lot.

She's such a cute little girl!

My goal was to achieve a soft painterly effect without losing detail in her face.

Can't remember how I did this... arrrgh... I tried several approaches and liked this one best.

Lots of help from Microsoft's Impressionist.

To many other subtle steps to mention.

Used this as practise to become more familiar with Painter. Painted from a cloned source with canvas texture. Many more great creative versions than mine here but Photoart is my "Sunday hobby".

pencil sketch

Did another version - tried to make a delicate pencil sketch. Used just Photoshop here and inverted, then blurred. Such a delightful subject!
